    My family(2 adults, kids 17,7,5) has purchased the deluxe DP. We were wanting to take advantage of all table service meals to get the most for our money. We will be there for 7 nights. Can you recommend some table service restaurants? Thanks so much!

    Hi Christy!

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip! 

    The Deluxe Dining Plan is a wonderful way to experience some of Disney's finest dining establishments.  With three meal credits (that you can use on either table service or quick service restaurants) two snacks and a refillable resort mug,  you have endless dining options.  Disney's signature restaurants require two table-service meal credits, and you have plenty with the Deluxe Plan, so I would definitely recommend visiting several.  Some of our favorites are Jiko at the Animal Kingdom Lodge (which, by the way has THE best macaroni and cheese in "the World" for kids) in addition to an unbelievable wine list, Artist Point at the Wilderness Lodge and the California Grille at the Contemporary.  If you like seafood, Flying Fish on the Boardwalk is a great way to start or end an Epcot visit.  Since you have little ones, I'd recommend having a few character meals to balance your total "Disney experience".  Our favorites are Cape May Buffet (breakfast) at the Beach Club, Crystal Palace (featuring Winnie the Pooh and pals) and Chef Mickeys.  Some other "random" favorites for my clan include Spoodles on the Boardwalk (its Sangria is delicious!), Coral Reef at Epcot and Mama Melrose at Hollywood Studios (more great Sangria....are you detecting a pattern?). Finally, while the food is "ok", my kids LOVE Sci-Fi Dine In Theater.  Sitting in a convertible watching old movies is very novel and a great way to cool off mid-day at Hollywood Studios.

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation!  Bon Appetit!
